Hepatitis panel

A hepatitis is the type of liver diseases, which have different origins and cause of the appearance, but have the equal impact over the organ – damage its tissues with a different degree of severity.

DIFFERENT TYPES OF HEPATITIS

The disease has three types: A, B and C. The last of them is the most dangerous, as its acute form often becomes chronic, as the result of which the process of full disruption of liver cells lasts for decades. The A hepatitis (Botkin’s disease) is transmitted through water, dishes, food. This type of the disease is caused by the yellowness of the skin, discoloration of feces, darkening of the urine and passes very acutely. The B hepatitis is usually transmitted through the blood. Everybody can catch it; that is why you need to undergo periodic examinations in order to start treatment in time.
